About Cardi’s Furniture
Cardi’s Furniture began as a general store in Cranston, RI, in 1928. By 1942, the Cardi family business was selling furniture, appliances and carpeting. Nicholas, Ron and Peter, known affectionately by family and friends as NI-RO-PE, are the grandsons of the founders of this mom and pop business, which they have operated since they graduated college.
Today, Cardi’s Furniture is among the leading furniture and mattress stores in Massachusetts with six convenient locations. The two Rhode Island locations are in South Kingstown and West Warwick. The Massachusetts locations include Braintree, South Attleboro, Swansea, and the Cape Cod furniture store in Hyannis.
About Toys for Tots
Toys for Tots is a program developed, organized and operated by the United States Marine Corps. It is the mission of the organization to collect new, unopened toys and to distribute them to needy children in the same community from where they were collected. The goal of the program is to provide hope to less fortunate children so that one day they may become productive and responsible citizens.
Toys for Tots began back in 1947 as a local project of Major Bill Hendricks and a group of Marine Reservists in Los Angeles. The program was so successful that it was officially adopted by the USMC nationwide the following year. Since that time, it is estimated that Toys for Tots is responsible for delivering over 400 million toys to over 188 million children.
So bring your toys by any Cardi’s location and help make this holiday season special for those in need.
